Message from the Commissioners

Commissioner Sharon Bolos:
It has been a pleasure serving as the newest County Commissioner for these past few months, and I am looking forward to the many challenges and opportunities that lie ahead as I continue on in this position. Throughout these first few months, I have had the opportunity to visit with many different departments to discuss their needs and goals, and how we as a team of commissioners can best assist them.

One extremely informative tour that I was able to attend was the Receiving Center at the McKay-Dee Hospital, which provides psychiatric care in a medical setting with licensed professionals. They specialize in behavioral health and provide resources to help you, a friend, or family member in a safe and supportive way who may be struggling in one way or another with their mental health. I am very grateful for the opportunity that I have to work with them, and assist them as they provide this very important service to our community here in Weber County.

Commissioner Gage Froerer:
Recently, your county commissioners and other elected officials were able to attend the annual Capitol Day on the Hill, where representatives from each county throughout the state were able to gather together at the State Capitol and advocate for the needs of those within their communities. While there, we were able to discuss the needs and interests of us right here in Weber County, and work with state legislators to discuss solutions to some of the challenges we face.

We were also able to work with those state legislators and ask for their support in infrastructure plans that we have, which would help bolster our growing population and ensure that Weber County is kept as a great place to live for generations to come.

Commissioner H. “Jim” Harvey:
It was a great experience celebrating our annual HOF Germanfest at the Ogden Eccles Conference Center. As a community we were able to come together and celebrate with authentic food, music, and traditional dances with entertainment being provided by the Salzburger Echo, B&B All-Stars Band, Kerry Christensen and many more artists. Between the show floor and the vendors it was the perfect place to share in the German Heritage!

Thank you to all those who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make this event happen. From the staff at the Ogden Eccles Conference Center, to the vendors that ran their booths, and all event attendees. Thank you for making this a fun, family friendly tradition for all to come and enjoy!
